ABSTRACT
The article cites a study which found that girls have the same chances with boys on reading disability. According to the primary author of the report Sally Shaywitz, boys in nature are more active, more inattentive and less dexterous and most likely to have behavior, language and academics problems than girls. Regardless of problems encountered by teachers in the classroom, the total ability and achievement of boys remained comparable with that of girls.
